No. This is a Norseman.

I have a bunch of time in a Beaver and I can tell you it's not a Beaver. I am also pretty sure it's not a single engine Otter but I have never flown one just admired them.

Uh.. Shot and a halfs..AKA J-1's or Capewells..... and I had several rigs with Blast handles on them and had 5 cutaways with Shot and a halfs and two reserve deployments with the Blast handle rigsCoolCool The 3 other reserve rides were all on Belly warts.

Not realllly sure but the guy in the back looks like he has 2 shots. I have a couple rigs with them... but have never had to chop with them.

Roaring off topic!

The best thing about 2-shots was that you never had to worry about them releasing prematurely. the damn things were rusted shut by the time I started jumping in 1977!

OK, back to the plane, then. Does this help?
(BTW, note the location of the main handle; this may help date the picture.)

Leaving (when converting military-surplus gear) the main ripcord on the left MLW is definitely a 1960s fashion.

The red and white airplane in the latest photo is a Pilatus Porter. The first piston-powered Porters were built in the late 1950s, but Turbine Porters had to wait until the early 1960s.

Hi howard,

In your latest photo the guy has his reserve tie-downs hooked up to the accessory ring on the harness and not to the reserve tie-down ring on the bottom of the container.

He is going to have a reserve container flopping around when he needs it,

Well, at least the one we can see. Maybe the other one is o.k.
So much for gear checks....

Ooops! Must have been that Amnesiac Double Pale Ale I was imbibing in the other night.

Agreed - the shot-and-a-halfs and (anti)blast handle always worked fine for me tooSmile

I still can't figure it out. The interior and exterior shots are the same plane? I feel like I'm going crazy when I compare them...

I'd say you implied it... "OK, back to the plane, then. Does this help?"

But thank goodness they're not!

Still haven't figured out what is is though.
